In Oklahoma, ownership of a car, truck or motorcycle is shown with a title. The current owner’s name must be on the title. However, when that vehicle is sold, gifted or changes ownership in some other way, the title needs to be changed so that the new owner’s name is on it. This is called a title transfer, and there are some specific steps that need to be taken to transfer a car title in Oklahoma that will vary depending on the situation and your role in the process.

If you’re buying

For buyers going through a private seller, the process to transfer a car title in Oklahoma is relatively simple, although there are some specific forms that need to be completed, as well as a number of steps.

  • Make sure to get the title from the seller, and that is has been completely and accurately filled out. The seller’s signature must be notarized. The odometer reading should be included on the title, or the seller may choose to include an Odometer Disclosure Statement.

  • Make sure you get the car’s registration card (must be current).

  • Make sure to complete the Application for Oklahoma Certificate of Title for a Vehicle.

  • Get insurance on the car and provide proof.

  • Get a lien release from the seller.

  • Make sure that the price of the car is listed on the title or a bill of sale. Alternatively, you can use the Declaration of Vehicle Purchase Price form.

  • Bring this information along with the $17 for the transfer fee to the county tax office.

Common mistakes

  • Not getting a lien release
  • Not ensuring the seller’s signature is notarized

If you’re selling

For private sellers, there are other steps that need to be taken to ensure that the buyer can transfer the car’s title. You’ll need to:

  • Complete the title completely, and make sure to have your signature notarized.

  • Provide the buyer with the car’s current registration.

  • Give the buyer a lien release.

  • Make sure that the odometer reading appears on the title, or that you use the Declaration Disclosure Statement.

  • Make sure the purchase price of the car is included on the title, the bill of sale, or the Declaration of Vehicle Purchase Price.

  • Notify the MVD that you’ve sold the vehicle. Use the Notice of Transfer of Ownership of a Vehicle (you’ll need to pay $10).

If you’re gifting or inheriting

The process for gifting a car is the same as above. However, if you’re giving a car to a qualifying family member (spouse, parents, children), then you’ll need to complete a Family Affidavit to ensure that they don’t have to pay sales tax.

The inheritance process is different, and changes depending on the means of inheritance.

  • You cannot transfer the title to a car left to you in a will before the will is probated.
  • You will need the letters of testamentary.
  • You will need a copy of the death certificate in all instances.
  • If there was no will and you are the only claimant, you will need to visit the MVD to have them complete the process for you.

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
